, obama has done none of these things in terms of picking teams. he has filled out his bracket a lot like he has governed. dispassionately and with a clear aversion to risk. >> it's a great insight. jonathan maler is a columnist at bloomberg, a friend of mine, i've been touting this piece because i love it so much. one of the points he makes is, well, in the second term, maybe obama would take more risk. but his bracket is, no. he's got indiana winning the whole thing and actually says on the air, says, well, i've got louisville going to the final four. i guess that's not a surprise. they -- jonathan points out that he didn't even pick his alma mater, harvard. >> well, who did? >> right. well, it is true that all the analysts were saying that new mexico is the real deal and then go deep in the tournament, right, and harvard knocked them off. so, yeah. it's a wonderful piece. and it sort of -- you know obama by his bracket. and it's really true. >> he wants to be right. >> yeah. >> doesn't want to be sentimental. he wants to be right. >> yeah, well, you know, one thing about the ncaa, if y

. at that time, you could assume extremism would not have the ability to organize to this -- to the great extent they probably organize now. at the beginning, and i am asking yolks because you're at -- asking you because you were at these compositions, against a regime that is a supported obama -- supported by iran? i will keep it short because there is a lot i want to ask. >> to be very brief, congressman, i, personally, do not agree we waited so long. we were helping democracy activists when i'd was in syria in 2011. we were doing a lot to help them. >> what was the reason to hold legal aid at that point? >> a lot of people in syria did not want outside interference in their uprising, the revolution. for a long time. through 2011. the syrians themselves wanted their demonstrations to be peaceful. armedid not want foreign intervention. they were bitterly criticizing iran for their intervention. >> i am talking about when it came to a shooting war. i am trying to figure this out because i do not know the answer. this is a difficult quandary. let me ask another question. when we talk about the re
